    I don’t see much difference in the color scheme between the two examples. It’s also too small and blurry to read what the subject is actually looking at. What I see is that the location of what the recruiter is looking for (approximately a third of the way from the top of the page) is what they are looking for.

    Could you home-in on the hotspots? I’d like what words caught the reader’s attention.

    Wow. If the recruiters are only interested in looking at the top portion of the first page — where your most recent position will be described — does that indicate that you shouldn’t expect to be attempting anything other than a parallel move. If they’re looking for career progression, they need to be looking at the bottom of the page (and the second page as well), no? Between ATS software that knocks most candidates’ resumes out of contention and recruiters that are spending only a few seconds glancing (you can hardly call it reading) at a printed resume it’s a wonder anyone ever gets hired.
